This week’s celebrity airhead is George Clooney. George takes his dear old Dad to Darfur, to interview poor starving refugees on how it feels to be a poor starving refugee who is being interviewed.
Remarkably, none of the emaciated wretches on hand crack them over the head with a ladle and boil them for soup, which I must admit would have been my first thought, hungry or not. Years of suffering have obviously taught these gentle souls superhuman restraint.
All very worthy, George, but couldn’t you have stayed at home and let Dad get on with it? Go make another film denouncing McCarthyism, why don’t you? Good to see an actor who’s not afraid to take a controversial position on a hot topic of the day…
George Clooney in Darfur, yesterday. “It’s a terrible humanitarian tragedy. Many of these people have no idea who I am.”
